Director John Hillcoat (The Proposition, The Road) has been shooting his new film, The Wettest County in the World, for awhile now, but this is the first look we’ve gotten of it. Wettest County is about 2 brothers living in the south who become bootleggers during the 1920’s prohibition. Boasting an extremely impressive cast, including Shia Labeouf, Tom Hardy, Mia Wasikowski, Guy Pearce, and Gary Oldman, this is definately a film to look out for. It’ll be interesting to see Hillcoat bring his very dark and gritty direction to prohibition era America.
